Passport America and good Sam's get you discounts at Lot of campgrounds across the U.S., not sure about Canada. Coast to coast has a lot of campgrounds but you must have a home park membership and can be extremely expensive to join.

It depends on where in the US you are planning to go before anyone can make a recommendation. Thousand Trails is a nationwide organization, but they do not have campgrounds in all 48 states. It can be very pricey depending on which membership you choose. You can buy memberships on the internet, but you need to check if it is nationwide or zone.

All i know is we are heading south for the winters... So where ever the wind takes us. What about boondocking is that a problem in most states

As mentioned, Passport America and Good Sam memberships give you discounts in many campgrounds/RV parks (except in the Southern US in the winter). The snowbirds have the money sucked out of them in Florida and other warm weather areas in the winter. No discounts and inflated rates so you may want to shop around and do it now rather than wait until it gets cold again as campsites can be hard to find then. If you don't mind a little freezing weather but no snow you can get better rates a little further North. State parks and COE (Corps of Engineers) campgrounds usually don't raise their rates in winter but they will limit your stay so keep that in mind. Then there is Quartzite, AZ where you have the whole desert to camp in and BLM (Bureau of Land Management) areas in the SW US that have lots of boondocking available. Also check .
